First off, one year is too much time. It's likely that you've forgotten what you learned in the first part of your preparation schedule. I suggest clearing your head for a week or two and retaking the exam. I might be mistaken but it seems like you have approached this test with a brute force method rather than analyzing your weaknesses. So I strongly suggest putting your past preparation behind you and starting afresh. Don't feel dejected at all! 560 is still above the national average and a 46Q is a great score. You just need to improve on verbal.
I am assuming you're a non-native speaker. So start out with MGMAT SC
. Take notes. Make sure you're completely thorough with each and every type of SC question. I only say this because this part is easily masterable. Once you're done with that, maybe THEN you can go through the OG and perhaps, 1000SC if you feel like it.
For CR: Start out with Powerscore CR
. The book has received excellent reviews and it's comprehensive in the sense that it covers everything from scratch.
For RC: This is something you can only achieve by practice. My advice is to jot down notes regarding the nature of the passage.
You just need to make sure that you're reading and absorbing the key content and message of the passage without wasting time on it too much. I've heard conflicting opinions, but I feel like the RC part is the one where you can actually get away with a lot of right answers without too much of preparation as long as you ask yourself the following when you look at the passage:
1. What is the overall message?
2. What is the first para trying to convey? The second? The third?
3. What is the conclusion?
Or perhaps, you can take a class and improve upon these areas if you feel like you're missing the mark even then. Your GMAT Prep score is likely to be + orr - 30 from the actual score.
Hope this helps. Kindly check out other Verbal threads in the verbal forum
